Imagine taking waste from a brewery to feed fish that are being raised for food.
Mario Mazza will present “From Beer to Fish” on Friday, February 1, 11 a.m., at Audubon Community Nature Center’s First Friday Lunch Bunch. He will describe how Westfield’s Five and 20 Spirits and Brewery teamed up with TimberFish Technologies to turn the waste products from their brewery and distillery into fish.
This innovative project takes waste from the distillery and brewery and uses it as the nutrient source for farm-raised fish and shrimp, all while cleaning the water. The one-of-a-kind process turns a costly waste product into a new product and revenue source.
Mario Mazza is the general manager and enologist for Mazza Vineyards. An enologist is the person responsible for everything having to do with the chemistry and biology of the wine.
